“Gracious God, bless our cities and make them places of safety for all people, rich and poor. Give us grace to work for cities where neighborhoods remain vibrant and whole, where the lost and forgotten in society are supported, and where the arts flourish. Make the diverse fabric of the city a delight to all who live and visit there and a strong bond uniting people around common goals for the good of all; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen” -Evangelical Lutheran Worship (our hymnal), p. 78.
The Gospel calls us into action. Augsburg is blessed with stability, and has been for over 125 years. Core to the mission of Augsburg is the mission of every heart to serve our community and the world. Each week in Worship we pray the words, “Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” We pray these words that we may become co-creators with God to build a brighter future.
The list of organizations in the right navigation represents some of the ways that Augsburg engages the call to serve others. It is by no means a complete list, nor shall it be until the kingdom of earth is more like the kingdom of heaven!
